Learn Something About Me

Hello! This is my fifth year teaching at McKeel Academy of Technology and my sixth year of teaching in general. I have a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education. This year, we will journey together through the swishing collards of Boo Radley's backyard, the twists and turns of poetic prose, the dusty streets of Verona, the nooks and crannies of grammatical structure, and the violent cruelty of the Third Reich. Be prepared for anything as we dive into the world of reading and writing!

A little about me... I was married in 2014 to Jim Cafarchio, my knight in shining armor. In February 2019, we welcomed our beautiful daughter Sarah Belle into the world. She is everything that was missing from our lives. When we are not caring for and playing with her, we host game nights for friends, visit Lake Morton or Lake Mirror to feed the ducks and swans, and geek out about our favorite TV shows. I look forward to bringing this kind of fun and positivity into my course's lessons and activities!

Message me and let me know if there is anything I can do for you or your child to enrich their McKeel Academy experience this year!
